Guidelines to Implement EBIPM
EBIPM Assessment Guidelines
The EBIPM Assessment Guidelines have been developed to assist land managers in pinpointing ecological processes not functioning in complex ecosystems. As invasive annual grasses continue to spread, it is clear that "business as usual" on rangeland is not getting the job done...is not solving the weed problem. This guide merges Rangeland Health Assessment together with EBIPM to identify not only the problem but also the cause of the problem, which can more successfully lead to our ultimate goal, fixing the problem.

Researching Cultivation History
Researching Cultivation History A Step-by-Step Guide to Obtaining Historical Records highlights how cultivation history can have surprisingly long-lasting impacts on vegetation, soils, and hydrology after crop production ends. These changes can influence the management decisions and treatments that are being considered. This guide is designed to help land owners, land managers, and scientists with step-by-step instructions for researching valuable cultivation history of the land on which they work.
Applying Ecologically-based Invasive Plant Management: An Introduction and Overview provides a look at the step-by-step method of managing invasive weeds using science-based solutions.

Establishing a Weed Prevention Area
Establishing a Weed Prevention Area: A step-by-step user's guide shifts the focus of weed management from reacting with expensive restoration to taking a proactive. and more economical, approach: prevention. This guide provides groups interested in setting up a viable prevention program in their area with the steps and resources to initiate and develop a weed prevention area.
Grazing Invasive Annual Grasses
Grazing Invasive Annual Grasses: The Green and Brown Guide outlines a simple, cost-effective method of managing invasive annual grasses through livestock grazing. The Green and Brown Strategy can help you manage your annual grasses and actually provides some direct benefits in animal production. This method of grazing is simple and can help control annual grasses while allowing perennial grasses to re-occupy the sites and generate more animal production.
Using Weather Data to Improve Decision-making
Using Weather Data to Improve Decision-making for Rangeland Restoration Efforts outlines fome specific strategies for using weather information in the EBIPM planning process for rangeland restoration and post-management treatment evaluation. Weather and climate variability have an enormous impact on rangeland restoration and establishment success in the Great Basin which makes the crucial information in this guide a valuable resource for land and resource managers, land owners, and others.
Revegetation Guidelines for the Great Basin
Revegetation Guidelines for the Great Basin: Considering Invasive Weeds provides an in-depth, step-by-step guide to the processes and procedures of establishing desired plant species in the Great Basin ecosystem.

Adaptive Management for Invasive Annual Grasses
Adaptive Management for Invasive Annual Grasses: A Step-by-Step User's Guide leads you through the necessary steps to implement adaptive management on the land you manage. Effective land management is complicated and no one treatment or technique works across all areas. Adaptive management enables the user plan, do, and learn during management and adapt to uncertainties in the management environment.
